the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a
government has stepped in to help. this is the third hurricane i've covered in my lifetime, andrew, katrina and now this. we are at the point where the population gets furious and they turn on the government. the government can just not handle the huge, huge logistical requirements that happen after a storm like this. could this actually turn on the president at some point here? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think what the president has had the opportunity to do is show americans that he was involved in an effort that the country was rallying behind and do his job in a way that got praise by the keynote speaker at the republican convention, chris christie, very tough critic of the president otherwise. so i don't think many voters are going to blame president obama for what's going on right now, and leave aside the fact that the states in which the difficulties are occurring db new york, new jersey, connecticut are all reliantly democratic states. what is much more important to the outcome of this election, michelle, is what's going on behind me at this afl-cio phone bank where union volu
governments spend on welfare for every household in poverty on average. $61,000. company, and it's one of the major issues in the election, in a country where 9 million people dropped out of the work force, almost 50 million people are on food stamps, the idea that welfare costs $61,000, that's amazing number. >> it's one household and you look at that and say can you imagine? look, you listed off the different statistics out there. this is the biggest reason why, i think, the president had a hard time convincing voters he's turned this economy around. i mean, poverty's rising sharply in his home state of illinois alone. it's a real tough message for him and we're in a record number of spending, so, you look the at the new thing, the problem is not getting fix. the ones getting the big generous pensions are the government workers and he's set up two classes in america, it's the politically connected and those in public offers, i think washington d.c. is one of the richest cities in the world and then, the have-notes are the ones who are out ever government. >> what about the critical v

up primarily by the federal government. in concert with local and state governments. the federal government pays the bulk of the bill. and you have a large number of states. and my guess is, this is going to be extensive damage from a financial point of view, which federal government through fema, federal emergency management agency, et cetera, ultimately winds up paying for. state and locals pay a portion of it. but it's a small portion. i don't believe that's going to have a significant impact long term. the expenses diffused. it's not good for state and local governments because we're already under a lot of pressure but i think that's going to be manageable. and i don't think it's going to have a major impact. i just -- your question earlier on when do the markets get up and running and is there a delay, i think if there's an economic impact, that would be it. that's why the white house is concerned. i'm going to be reaching out to secretary geithner to make sure we're coordinated to everything we can to get wall street everything it needs to be operational as soon as possible
? a little bit for everybody. all right. now, okay, "new york times." a big storm requires big government. disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. at a republican primary debate last year, mr. romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. he not only agreed, he went further. mr. romney not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast east coast storm better than washington, but that companies can do an even better job. he said it was immoral for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt. many don't like the idea of free aid for poor people or think people should pay for their bad decisions, which this week includes living on the east coast. >> what do you want me to say? >> nothing. i really don't want you to say anything. >> no, i want to say something. >> okay. go ahead and say something. >> that's absolutely ridiculous. >> okay. >> i think what mitt romney is absolutely ridiculou

don't cover flooding. the federal government has at various times extended flood insurance and helped people. particularly when anyone remembers the fiasco where the federal government says, listen rich people, you can build beautiful houses again. that road where they let beautiful houses doesn't exist right now after last night and a lot of the properties that were destroyed are wealthy people. long beach island. people build homes where they shouldn't build them but counting on the federal government to bail them out again. >> flooding in homes and businesses. verizon sent out a picture of the lobby of one of their big buildings not far from here during the night of the storm. there was a foot of hudson river in there and that's a case for a lot of different things down here in downtown new york and throughout. let's not forget it wasn't just new york. new jersey perhaps hardest hit of any particular state. >> i wonder how little we know. i was watching tv. we were having helicopter problems. suddenly there is atlantic city in real life. you realize that chris christie had what we
@. rich: much of that throughout the federal government today. the metro system is closed. the subway system. the busing system closed today. there have been power outages. president obama back at the white house, earlier than he at expected. at 12:45 p.m. we expect to hear from president obama. we will also hear from fema. they are waiting to see what happens. fema has moved water bottles and blankets all up and down the east coast. right now it is a matter of where will the storm hit and how hard is it going to hit? they are waiting and trying to figure out where all of this will happen. back to you. dagen: thank you so much for that. sandy already closing markets and delaying earnings reports and good even close to jobs report on friday. however, what would happen if that did happen. connell: art laffer joins us now. the statement about 45 minutes ago came from the census bureau. they said there was no decision as they put it on delaying the jobs report on friday. we both said we think it is unlikely. you do not want to feed into anything. what do you say? >> i think they will publ
in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work together. but i think they're taking the swing state polling very seriously, and not so much on the other. >> yeah. steve, quickly, hurricane sandy. we know it's canceled events in virginia and new hampshire. how might it impact the race? could this turn out to be an october surprise, do you think? >> ab
personnel or working with state and local governments do make sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for the communities that will be hardest hit. >> on the east coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. our hearts and our prayers go to them as we think about how tough it will be. >>shepard: the president and governor romney have canceled events because of the storm. nasa shows hurricane sandy approaching the united states with tropical storm force winds extending almost 500 miles from the center. that is the biggest storm that ever hit the region since records have been kept. combined with high tide and a full noon and to other weather systems that the be part of this weather system and we are watching history in the making. this storm is going to come ashore sooner than we thought. it will come to sure more quickly than first forecast. with all of that if mind we have coverage with rick on the northern shore of new jersey and doug is in delaware, first, we will get to where we are and where it is going. and janice dean, what
'm looking at your industry and thinking this is one of the most heavily regulated government intervened industries in the country and those two facts are not connected? >> they're not connected, because basically you cannot stop hurricane sandy from knocking down power lines. and from bringing water into the underground tunnels in new york where we have underground equipment. or creating major snowstorms out in west virginia. we've had everything but the locu locusts in this situation and we've brought in 60,000 -- 60,000 people have left their homes from as far away from california and all around the country to come east here to sit in staging areas throughout the storm to get together, to help to try and bring power back on. they're the unsung heroes. i don't know of any other industry that does that. >> what about these substations, which apparently are going to be a big problem. when can they get cleared up so the power can flow? >> that's another thing. when substation gets flooded, like anything else, the water has to be pumped out. you talked about in terms of the amtrak situatio

the election system, it doesn't come from the government. i can tell you the topic came up. the fema director, fugate, did talk with officials. this is what happened in the state of florida when it happened in 2004. they moved polling places and got generators where it was necessary to open precincts. and by the way, the federal government reimbursed the state for those costs. that is why it came up, because state and local officials asked mr. fugate if they could get reimbursed with federal tax dollars and he said that yes, that would be the case. that would be step one, a delay, and next, it is not up to the states, it would be a case by case. >> these early reports where we're getting where we can't get pictures yet out of the area just north of new york city is of some catastrophic damage, trees still down, over the wires, arcing wires, so we're in for a long couple of days. chuck todd in the west wing, of the briefing room at the white house. chuck, thanks. we'll be right back after the break. our coverage will continue right after this. ♪ with a low national plan premium... ♪ ...and

. it will be a big moment for the president not only for him but our government and fema to be on the main stage. it is it an opportunity for surrogates to mentioned that romney would eliminate fema. the conventional wisdom. low turn out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is exclusively about weather patterns and fema and that gives a natural advantage to obama. the president looks for an intervoning cause and unable to do it yourself and the weather may help him. it may wind up that mother nature was the october surprise. >> i agree. >> i agree. >> steve: thank you for yoining us
the conservative view and that precludes any disasters and that's a role of government. overreaction is more typical and you see that this morning. you're at work and i know where in new jersey you are and you have to cross george washington to get there. >> gordon, there must be some group of people who feel -- i think katrina was the dividing line. things changed. there used to be people who wanted to press this. take advantage of it. it seems like that is universally ruled as being reckless and indangendangerment. that wasn't the case before katrina. >> that's cya. public officials don't be a bonus for being right but they get criticized for being wrong. since katrina, you're right, everyone is taking conservative. hard to argue with that because when they are correct, it was the correct thing to do. as you see, you get to work and a lot of people can't get to work even if they wanted to. >> gordon, it's david faber. let's assume this goes through tomorrow and wednesday we start to see a break. how quickly can things get back to normal for the airline industry in this country? >> david, t

of the federal government here in washington is closed today. that includes the department of labor. however, folks at department of labor the bls is working hard on friday he's jobs report. the last one before election day. much anticipated. here's a statement we have from the department of labor. they say employees at bureau of labor statistics are working hard to ensure the timely release of employment data on friday, november 2nd. it's our intention friday will be business as usual recording the october employment situation report. no guarantees from the department of labor they're get this report out by friday because their workers are scatter add cross the region right now but they say their intent is to get it out. how could that affect the actual report itself? experts say in terms of the storm's impact in the last couple of days of the month, what you might see is an impact a little bit on hours worked, but not necessarily on the overall employment situation. it's mostly a question now of whether the staff can gather that data, get it into the department of labor, get it processed i
back because some government offices were closed during the storm. the only other time in history the jobs report was delay was in 1996 because of the federal government shutdown. a reminder, this is the last jobs report before election day and the government tells us they're working real hard to make sure that jobs report is ready as scheduled. soledad? >> all right, christine, thank you for that update. >>> still ahead this morning, i want to show you a picture of a crane we were watching closely yesterday. this morning, that crane has toppled quite a bit. take a look. the top of the crane has tipped from being tilted toward the building to tipped away from the building. it has started to collapse. they can't secure it any more because of the high winds. this is at a luxury high-rise called 157. we're back in just a moment. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.
